The new and improved tasting room (and pilot brewery). All the usual suspects on tap as well as at least 10-12 special beers. Lots of seating outside with a big patio area. Some seating inside as well, though the bar is pretty much just for ordering beers. Friendly service as always and the prices are pretty fair. I’ll be stopping by frequently.

Wellllllll. Super-friendly service. Comfortable outdoor seating. But from there it all kind of goes away. Smoking is allowed or at least tolerated, and everyone does. So the place smells like ass. The beer is OK, nothing super high-level. One senses a certain OC bro-dom dominates.

Cool patio and bar area. 1/2 pint, and sample flights available. Beers are mostly tasty, Belgians are a bit off for me

Great spot. Big range of beers across a variety of styles (though there is certainly an emphasis on the hoppy stuff). The quality of the beers, on the whole, was above average. They offer four-beer flights, which assists with the ticking. Pretty good value. The barman wasn’t especially friendly but whatever. The place itself has a garage feel to it. The location is not too far from the train station, which was nice for me. Worth a visit.

Overdue rating from a visit awhile ago.The produce solid beers and have good pricing. The floor plan is open and with the doors open on a warm day and a nice breeze its a great place to enjoy a few brews.

What’s with the low scores here? The beer is usually pretty good and it’s a playground for adults. Cornhole, the giant Jenga setup, music, and it’s outside so it doesn’t get as stuffy as the old location used to. As previously mentioned the beer is cheap and any time I can get Knuckle Sandwich easily I’m happy. Parking is a pain though, so be prepared for that. This is also near a lot of cool places in downtown Fullerton so you can hit a few other places easily if you aren’t into Bootleggers. Aside from parking I think my only complaint is lack of bartenders.

Sweet spot! About 14 house taps on - flights at a buck per pour. Just a garage and patio, but lots of fun being had by the crowd.

It’s nice sitting out on the patio, but overall a place I won’t miss. Some of the beers are good, some very boring, but none of them bad. The place is more or less just a warehouse with a bar and some benches and tables. Not a cozy place in any way, but it wasn’t bad sitting in the shadow on a hot summer day sampling some beers.

The new tasting room in DTF is a nice place to have a beer without the usual associated crowd of DTF. For me the best part is the large patio as its elevated from the street a bit so the noise of passing traffic is not bothersome. Usual lineup of the mainstays, along with random appearances of one-offs/pilot beers, which is cool. The Mason jars are a little hipster, but still a cool place overall.

New tasting room in a much better location, actual area to sit with large patio and big jenga and foosball. Lots of beers on tap. Unfortunately they don’t do tasting flights, which is my rage. Then the beers are served in mason jars -__- They have half pours though for $4 each about. However, the beer quality when I was here was shockingly lower than anticipated...far below what I tried at the old location. Perhaps a different brewer or something. Beers were served extremely cold- hard to taste anything. Server had the "could give a shit" attitude even though we were the only ones there. Two married women won a raffle to have a VIP tour of the brewery so that was very interesting to him causing a long disappearance. Good hours, 4 parking spaces only so good luck I guess? They had 15 beers on tap maybe, nowhere near 40.

Finally got the chance to stop by. Interesting feel. Very open with a huge outdoor area. Public parking is not too far away. Very limited parking out back. More beer pilot system that apparently isn’t used much if at all. Bootleggers lineup typical of the old tasting room. Good service. Very convenient hours for an OC brewery tasting room. Not bad. Well priced as it always was.
